Elesa has developed new structures for mounting equipment whilst mitigating the effects of vibrations.
The new range of vibration mounts have recently been enhanced by AVR rubber buffer plates consisting of two zinc-plated steel plates glued onto both sides of a perforated NBR rubber vibration-damping body, which is available with different hardness ratings. The range also includes square plates with SBR rubber coating (AVR-Q) and rectangular plates (AVR-R).
The AVR rubber buffer plates offer effective protection against vibration and shock where compressive resistance is required and are suitable for meeting the requirements of industrial air treatment systems (HVAC), for electrical panels and presses, possible sources of vibration that must be isolated as much as possible to prevent malfunctions and to protect the operator’s health.
Rubber buffers in natural rubber NR in combination with threaded inserts in zinc-plated steel or AISI 304 stainless steel are available in cylindrical, conical, hourglass or bell-shaped form.
There are also silicone rubber (MVQ) variants, which comply with FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) regulations for use in the food and medical industries.
Another addition to the range is vibration-damping levelling feet with bases, stems and damping element in different sizes and combinations of materials, suitable for loads up to 40,000 N to offer stability to heavy machinery even in the presence of strong vibrations.
